joe, the plant in question should be tonina fluivitis . . . this is a plant
supposedly native to taiwan, and is very popular over there . . . however,
it is hard to grow in the tropics as it likes cooler temperatures, like 24
degrees celcius . . . there are a few subspecies . . . in taiwan they call
it the 'sun plant' -> direct translation . . .
